Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Mujahid Yusof Rawa has urged the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) to probe a social media postings by controversial entrepreneur and singer Nur Sajat.
Mujahid, who is in charge of Islamic Affairs, met with MCMC in Putrajaya yesterday to discuss the issue.
He said the transgender entrepreneur’s move to pose wearing female prayer attire while in Mecca and posting it on Instagram caused unease among Muslims.
"Immediate action will be taken by MCMC," Mujahid was reported as saying by Bernama.
He said MCMC has the power to bar social media content which causes unease among Muslims.
The minister also met with haj tourism agency Albayt Travel (M) Sdn Bhd, which handled Sajat's trip to the Mecca to perform the umrah pilgrimage.
Mujahid insisted that Sajat must perform the umrah as a man.
